in principle. this is a compelling story of what it means to be an american. dan inouye had an impact on so many lives, including mine. his extraordinary accomplishments at the stuff of legend. not all tested in world war ii, despite severe burns prevailed in combat, recipient of our nation's highest award for valor, the medal of honor. distinguished senator from hawaii, president pro tem of the senate. the site also exemplified the qualities most revered by his community, quiet humility, respect for others, standing on principles that matter. family, service to community. a modest man who is assertive and doing what was right. when america was plunged into the crucible of world war ii, nowhere was the attack on pearl harbor more keenly felt than in the japanese-american community. it's difficult today to recall the full intensity of fear, of confucian, a suspicion of recrimination, even hatred that are merged in the days and weeks and months following a surprise attack 71 years ago. and despite the clear injustice in the dinner relocating so many of the japanese community. second-generatio
over the course of a long career. but mr. president, what i want to focus on for a minute is the dan inouye who has been there for me as a friend and mentor for the past 20 years. who has been a shining light in this chamber. senator inouye was not the loudest member of this chamber, he was not the most robust and he wasn't a senator who spent his time making long winded speeches but through his quiet resolve, his under stated strength and his commitment to do the right thing no matter what he was able to accomplish so much. he led the appropriations committee through difficult times with grace and incredible effectiveness. the partisan rank that too oftendom nates this city was unaccept to believe him. his focus was on people, on the infrastructure they depend on in the communities, on the must vulnerable. he was a giant here in the senate, he was a mountain back home. hawaii would not be hawaii without dan inouye. he fought for his state. he would not allow it to be ignored and he made it a better place to live and work for generations to come. mr. president, as a senator from anot

a professor, dan smith, from the university of florida testified at your hearing in tampa. in fact, that his investigation, is the university investigation found that there were two particular groups that utilized in the history of florida early voting over the previous decade sundays as the time that they voted. one was african-americans, and the other was hispanics. that was one thing the legislation did. the law also made voting harder for people who had moved from one county to another and had a different address. because when they showed up to the new voter registration, if they did not have in their documentation, such as their drivers license, which likely they had not updated from the old address, it was a different county, they were not allowed a ballot. they were given a provisional ballot, and we know from the 2008 elections of the provisional ballots cast, one half of them in 2008 were thrown out. now, as a result of the new voter suppression law, you've already stated, mr. chairman, long lines an avalanche of provisional ballots, court challenges, all of it has come to pass. you
countries. americans pay on average $41.7% when you factor in federal, state and local taxes, but the dans pay more, 48.1%. and so how come these guys are happier? danish taxes pay for pok post-secondary education. canadas taxes pay for universal health care. the french pay fewer taxes than americans do and are less happy. only the japanese actually make sense, they pay higher taxes, 47.2% and they are less satisfied with what they end up with. fareed zakaria is the host of cnn's fareed zakaria gps and has a special on sunday at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. entitled "tough decisions." i asked him are american taxpayers getting their money's worth. >> imagine a guy in germany, probably he pays particularly if he's upper middle class or upper class, he probably pays more in total taxes than his american counterpart. though it's not entirely clear once you add value-added consumption tax, for sure he's paying more. but here's what he gets in return. he gets universal health care, high-quality. he gets a free education. from kindergarten through any master's bachelor's ph.d. program he wants and i
even more significant this time, dan, because really the american job generation machine has slowed down dramatically. and we've let our business environment get less and less efficient. we've let the cost of doing business rise up. we've got -- we're losing many, many more investment decisions and business activities to other countries than we're getting back. and yet, the political debate including the one we're having this morning is really not about the really important things. it's not about skills. it's not about the fundamental structure of reforms we need to make in our budget, our tax system. we're kind of -- we've gotten ourselves into a kind of a short-term day-to-day dialogue. we're not really addressing the real issues. >> a couple things going back to jpmorgan. first of all, we learned time and time that no man, no human being is smarter than the markets. not anybody. that's number one. and number two, with regard to the banks and the size of the bank, we got rid of glass steegle which allowed investment banking to combine with commercial banking because we needed to b

. when i was back in d.c., we had dan and bob and they sat in an irish bar around the corner and worked out the tax bill in 1987, i believe the year was. that's the kind of leadership the article was just talking about. instead of the people that call up and paris at the propaganda, we really have to be practical. -- that parrot the propaganda. a house divided cannot stand. let me give my personal example. i live on $6.66 a day. that is food stamps. that is for single adults. i live on social security, $774 a month. i am trying to go back to cornell to do sustainable energy. we are in a double down on reaganomics in despite. jimmy carter had great inflation because for five years we were a peaceful country again. then reagan put us back into the largest military buildup in peacetime. i think that's what we ought to do is realize that did not work, just like some of the new deal stuff was not working correctly. what we have to do is c- span.org [indiscernible] i want to thank mr. richard delver of the department of transportation, because unlike michael bloomberg -- host: you have gone a

. >> this is a dan westbound lane daly city. >> a developing story that we are following this morning. three homicides in oakland overnight. the first was a double shooting on the 800 block of mead ave in west oakland. that happened around 1 this morning. police are still on the scene investigating. at 230, a stabbing on the 5800 block of walnut street. >> this video was shot at 5:45 a.m.. i spoke with a witness and he stated that he looked out of his window and he sought to sets of vehicles pulled up. he stated that the car had four men inside. he stated that the four men walked up to two men were sitting in front of a house and then they fired a few rounds. they looked around just to evaluate the scene and then before they headed back to the car the witness stated that the two men on the ground were not even moving and then one of the men fired more shots into the victim as he was lying down on the ground. i guess he wanted to make sure that the two guys rs were really dead. >> he stated that it was a man in his early 20s and he was very popular in the area. we're still hoping to talk to i
, we'll bring your interviews with two retiring members of congress. first, dan burton. then, kent conrad who is leaving the senate after five terms. we spoke to both men about their careers. join us tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. >> as president obama begins his second term in office, what is the most important issue he should consider? >> tell us then they make a short video about your message to the president. >> your chance to win a grand prize of $5,000. $50,000 in total prices. for more information, go to studentcam.org. >> next, kent conrad talks about fiscal cliff negotiations and proposals for a long term deficit reduction. he will be retiring this year after serving in the u.s. senate since 1987. this is about an hour. >> good morning. good to see you all. another day of fiscal cliff or fiscal curve, whatever one wants to term it. what we do know is the law is about to change, all the tax cuts from the bush era are about to expire. across the board spending cuts, some $1.2 trillion over the next ten years. so these are significant changes in law about to occ
. that looks bad to their constituents. and as one democratic source told our dan that bash, this will be the last train we have and there is no sense in it leaving the station before we have assurance it will get through. procedurally, jonathan, is there still time? >> procedurally, there's still time. it certainly depends on how complicated the fix is. if it's something simple it can be drawn up in a few lines and perhaps there's time. if they end up trying to get complicated there may not be time. if there's somebody in the senate bent on stopping this from happening because the senate rules, you can see there being a problem in terms of getting it done before january 1st, it really all depends on the level of consensus. when there's consensus in congress, things move very fast. sometimes in the blink of an eye trillions of dollars can go out the door. at other times if people want to hold up the process, it can take several weeks to get done. >> one analyst talked about bungee jumping off the cliff. so an easier bill will come after january 1st that everyone will vote fo

public editor, dan. he was pretty critical. i didn't all the agree with him and he had his kind of quirks like everybody else does and he couldn't stand klugman who i think is quiet good. and then gentle barney very rarely raised his voice so they liked him. and i was pretty -- kind of critical of him. he's a very nice man but didn't push them. then the next person was craig whoy thought was quite good. then they had author who didn't finish his term and didn't have much to say. but i think really what we need in the public editor frankly, and i have said this in print, not in the book, but they need kind of a somewhat trance gressive feistty public editor who calls them to account. for example, their financial reports, i've talked about that, are often semibog gus. they are on the mystic and were issuing reports that weren't true. if they issue reports ten years in a row that are overly optimistic somebody should call them on this. they just write stories about themselves. but i think we could have a little bit of a -- they should be called to account on lots of things. they should be ca
